WP 3 Economic Modelling Studies
WP leader: Dr. Karine Chevreul, UPEC
The objective of WP3 is to estimate the cost-effectiveness of implementing internet-based ‘blended’ depression treatment in primary healthcare and specialised healthcare with a five-year time horizon in comparison with treatment as usual (TAU). An economic model will be built using a Markov model to simulate the natural course of depression. In a second step, treatment effects and costs will be incorporated in the model to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of the implementation of internet-based ‘blended’ depression treatment compared to TAU.
